Brenda Starr (Avalon)

    (Avalon, 1998)
® and ©1998 Tribune Media Services

This series from America’s Comic Group reprints Dale Messick’s classic Brenda Starr Sunday comic strips from the 1940s in black-and-white. While the strips lose something from the lack of color, the sense of adventure remains; Brenda Starr, an intrepid reporter, gets wrapped up in insidious criminal plots and endeavors to bring the bad guys to justice. All the while, she’s looking fabulous! In fact, the lower third of each page features paper-doll outfits for fans to cut out and dress Brenda to the nines. A nice package of nostalgia…too bad it’s in black and white.
